Big Red Curtain Loves Performing!
Not only does it give our students a break from examinations and learning the technical side of performing arts but it gives them an opportunity to show what they've learnt and show it off in a professional environment!
Annual Charity Show
One of our main aims at Big Red Curtain alongside providing training to recognised qualification levels is to provide the opportunity for students to take part in shows and productions. We stage at least two main shows in the year and normally have a 3rd showcase around the same time as we have performing arts examinations. The main annual show normally takes place around the Easter holidays and is at a Professional Yorkshire Theatre. Past Venues include City Varieties, Leeds, The Royal Hall in Harrogate and the Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds the main show is performed in aid of charity and combines students from all of the Big Red Curtain stage schools outside of the school's normal running hours.

Prohibition - A Journey through Prohibition America with songs from Bugsy Malone, Anything Goes, Chicago, Singing in the Rain, Funny Girl and Thoroughly Modern Milllie.

Our other main show is our annual Pantomime or Winter Show which is written in-house and devised partially by the students, we write the pantomime for each location from scratch each year to incorporate current, songs and events around a traditional theme. These shows takes place just before christmas and are held at a local venue relevant to each School Location.
